Our new partnership with the Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies (CCRS) advances our ongoing commitment to deliver on the Paris Accord and our ambition for carbon neutrality by 2040 while delivering growth and long-term shareholder value. Our strategy for managing climate change includes action across the entire footprint of our organisation.
We’re working with the CCRS to support our climate change activity with analytics, including:
- A detailed assessment of leading climate science to test and inform activity within changing patterns of extreme weather, and different scenarios of transition risks including regulatory change and consumer sentiment trends.
- Strengthening our financial quantification of these impacts, by mapping Reckitt’s global business activities and the potential consequences of future changes.
- Analysis of potential ways to evolve the business to achieve our goals for the Paris Accord and net-zero ambitions.
We are the official Hygiene Partner for COP26, and are playing our part in tackling climate change by setting science-based targets to reach net zero emissions.
In June 2020, we committed to accelerate the delivery of the Paris Climate Change Agreement and RE100, with the goal of achieving 100% renewable electricity across its operations by 2030 as part of an ambition to be carbon neutral by 2040.
Our partnership accelerates our integration of climate-related risks and opportunities into our existing Governance, Strategy, Risk Management, and Reporting framework.
